Altenew March 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by - March 13, 2019


Hello, there! If this is your first time on my blog, welcome! My name is Ashlea and am overjoyed to be joining the March Stamp/Die/Stencil release for Altenew. 

I got so much inspiration from the products in this release that I could barely stop creating with them! To begin, here's a video showing how I used the Wallpaper Art Mask & Stencil (which I find to be a seriously genius product) with the Wallpaper Art stamp set to create a gorgeous one layer card that has plenty of detail and dimension. Check it out below:


You should have gotten here from Nathalie Desousa. Your next stop is the super talented Pooja. See the full list below!

The Wallpaper Art set also has coordinating dies which I used to create the card below. To color them in, I used Altenew's Spring Garden Watercolor Brush Markers to create vibrant blooms that span the entire card front. It's literally like a garden on a card. I couldn't help myself!


One of my favorite sets from the release is the Book Club stamp and coordinating dies. I love when a stamp set immediately gives me inspiration for something other than a card. Don't get me wrong, card making is my passion, but when I get the urge to make something out of the ordinary I jump at it! Just as I did here to create this magnetic bookmark using the stamp and die set.


To begin I stamped and colored in the image with Copic markers. I then die cut the image and stamped the included sentiment, "this book belongs to" and then wrote my name. To create the base for the bookmark I took a piece of white card stock that I had scored and folded in half. I then took the die and made sure to hand the very top of it off of the fold when I ran it through my die cutting machine. This allowed for the shape of the image white maintaining the fold at the top that's necessary for a bookmark. I then took a couple of lightweight magnet square panels and trimmed them down so they would fit on the inside of the bookmark. I adhered them with glue being sure to adhere them in the way they naturally fell onto each other. Magnets like this don't tend to attract flush together. Voila!

A new set that is absolutely a must have is the Versatile Vases stamp set. There's also coordinating die and a mask/stencil that coordinated with the vases as well. If you watched my video you've already seen how I use this set. It's so perfect for clean and simple cards. It immediately grounds a single flower or a full bouquet and creates a scene in itself. This can be used so many times in so many different ways. Not to mention the font and sentiment in the set are amazing!


Finally today, I'm showing the Watercolor Doodles stamp set. This set is so versatile and perfect for any occasion. By choosing an appropriate sentiment you can use these images for any type of card. You could use them as I did here with both the outline and solid stamps to add color, or you could use just the outline stamps and create a more sketched appearance on your card.
